    They had a huge clearance/warehouse sale about 12-16 months ago. Pulled archived items out of mothballs. I was able to pick up a few early club figures I had missed out on. They don't have much inventory left frankly.

    Cotswold Collectibles, partnered with Hobbycrash's Geyperman reissues and boutique producers like Loucoporbonecos, has done a terrific job of catering to 1/6 figure hobbyists--much like the Pauls and Anthony have done for Mego.
    Don't forget Sean Huxter, 3d toy printer extraordinaire!! Thank god for Cots! They are really keeping the AT alive with a lot of their offerings. Great stuff.

    I have seldom been disappointed with my annual membership figure. And some of the AT-themed convention sets have been pricey but terrific. The best membership figure IMO was 2012's Man of Evil; I thought that was a fantastic concept and execution of an adversary figure for AT Joe.
    agree 100%. Man of Evil was awesome. fantastic figure and accessory set

    Hasbro yanked the license because they claim to want to keep it in house, ie, keep all the profits. unfortunately, as we have seen, they think very little of GI Joe so it is doubtful anything good will happen

    if I'm not mistaken, I believe Hasbro also took the Transformers club back

    I don't mean to overlook Sean, I was thinking of him as part of Cots--which is why I mention Paul (W.), too with Mego.
    Sean's stuff is amazing, I'm floored by the stuff he designs.

    The folks at Cotswold are some of the nicest a hobbyist could hold to deal with, I've been a customer for about 25 years and their customer service is tops.
    WANTED: POTA Fortress signal-flasher--top portion; POTA Forbidden Zone prison doors; vintage Galahad box; minty Wolfman tights; Black Knight sword; Lion Rock (pale) Dracula & Mummy heads; Wayne Foundation blue furniture; Flash Gordon/Ming (10") unbroken holsters; CHiPs gloved arms; POTA T2 tan body; POTA knife-sword; CTVT/vintage Friar Tuck robes.

    The club has had a few clearance sales, which caused some tension after con sets were closed out. I think they are still selling off "archived" items now.

    Some of the other exclusives, like the talkers and the AT recreations, have been great IMO and really appealed to me as a collector of reissued Joes.
